One or more printers are available for student printing in each UOIT library.

Solutions to Printing Problems:

The printer has a message screen which may indicate the problem:

1 . If the message screen displays a READY message, then there are not any printer problems. Check the following:

  • Printing is provided by IT Services and only current students can access these printers. Other patrons cannot print but can send documents to an email account.
  • The computers in the libraries have been configured to print to the public printer on the floor where the computer is located. To allow printing to another public printer or to print from a Mobile Learning laptop the printer must be added.

How to add a printer (look under ‘Printer Configuration…’)

Library printers are as follows:

    • Change to ‘Letter 8 ½ x 11 in’ if necessary

You can also determine your print balance by visiting To purchase additional prints students should inquire with IT Services.
